Copa Airlines Leverages Points' Loyalty Commerce Platform to Offer ConnectMiles Members More Value and Flexibility with Ability to Buy, Gift and Transfer Reward Miles

Points (TSX:PTS) (Nasdaq:PCOM), the global leader in powering loyalty commerce, today announced a partnership with Copa Airlines to enable ConnectMiles program members to buy, gift or transfer their reward miles. The partnership supports Points' expansion into the Central American market and allows Copa Airlines to better engage their ConnectMiles members.

"We're excited to work with one of Central America's leading airlines and loyalty programs," said Rob MacLean, CEO at Points. "We've proven the value of our Buy, Gift and Transfer solutions with loyalty programs across the globe and are proud to bring that functionality into the Latin America and Caribbean travel market, starting with Copa Airlines."

By leveraging Points' Loyalty Commerce Platform, Copa Airlines can better engage with their loyalty members by providing opportunities for them to earn and then use their reward miles more quickly.

"By leveraging Points' Buy, Gift and Transfer solution in our loyalty program, we are able to deepen engagement with our members and bring them closer to their next redemption," said Timothy Manoles, Loyalty Vice-President at Copa Airlines. "We're excited to increase the value and utility of our currency and provide more opportunities for ConnectMiles members to interact with and manage their rewards."
